The village head also brought the delegates to tour the exhibition hall which displayed pictures and articles of the village’s activities.
Meanwhile, the Women’s Bureau of the council demonstrated the making of banana crackers or ‘keripik pisang’, which served as one of the village’s product for the ‘One Village One Product’ project.
